Subject: A Cute, Little Funny Reporter/Almost Film Noir Piece
5 stars to balance out MR. Grumpy. Light weight but entertaining film. Lots of interesting characters (I like the Hunchback and the cute girl). Emphasis on funny rather than a heavy-duty crime story. If you want to kill an hour enjoyably, this is the film for you.

Subject: Pass
This tale follows an investigation of citywide corruption. Bad acting, bad directing, and a telegraphed plot makes for a boring movie.

I downloaded the largest file, a MPEG-4. Video and audio are OK.
